The Development of an Art I Curriculum Guide for the Mesquite Independent School District

Date: December 1976
Creator: Bradley, Cynthia Cathy
Description: This study reports on the development of a curriculum guide to insure some degree of experience uniformity in the first art course available to students in high schools in Mesquite, Texas.
